Live your dream of becoming a Disney cartoon with the new ‘Cartoon 3D Style’ Lens.
Ever catch yourself wishing you were a Disney Pixar character? To those who said yes, you’ll definitely want to check out the new Cartoon 3D Style Lens from Snapchat.
Available now via the Snapchat app (iOS, Android), this amazing/terrifying filter uses augmented reality (AR) technology to transform you into an original cartoon character that looks like it was taken straight out of a Disney Pixar film. After downloading and activating the Lens, you can tap on the screen to jump back and forth between two different facial styles.
Despite having just released on the multimedia messaging app, users are already having a field day with this one-of-a-kind Lens, and the results so far have been impressive, to say the least.
One creative user used the filter to recreate a scene from the popular animated film Frozen, playing both the roles of Anna and Hans simultaneously. Another user used the Lens while lipsynching the song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from the classic Pixar film Toy Story.
Apparently, the Cartoon 3D Style Lens also works on 2D images, including famous works of art such as the Mona Lisa, a self-portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, and Girl with a Pearl Earring, as well as inanimate objects, like this Vin Diesel action figure (WARNING: NSFW). There’s even a hilarious Disney-fied version of former US president Barrack Obama.
The Cartoon 3D Style Lens can be accessed via Snapchat’s Lens Carousel or by scanning the image above.
Snapchat made waves last month during its annual Snap Partner Summit with the reveal of its new AR-enabled Snap Spectacles as well as updates to its Scan and Camera tools.
